One beautiful day for a baby shower at Sandy's Tropical Paradise at 408 Westminster Ave. Here are my girls...my stampin' family. Left to right: Sandy, Kathy, Grace, Me, Tracey, Kai, Coral, Amy, Karina, Andrea and Ann.
Tracey and Coral are checking out the 6x6 pages everyone made for Baby Boy Lau.
Sandy sharing a cold one with Amy.
My sister, Andrea and Amy...cheers.
Grace double fisting some spiked lemonade. I heard it was good.
Ahhh, the yummy, oh so yummy. Sandy's delicious cupcakes. As you can see...Grace and Kai were not shy about taking one of each kind. Who could resist? I couldn't.
Me and Tracey
Yeah, Karina made it to the party. Thumbs up on the food.
This was my plate...as you can see...there was no cupcake to be seen. Cause I already ate it. I started with a cupcake and ended with a cupcake. Sandy's pumpkin with fresh whipped cream topped with a little cinnamon. Yum! Yum!
I love berries. Thanks Coral.
Andrea brought the fruit salad...so refreshing.
Cupcakes...I love cupcakes. The ones on the left are my fav.
Amy brought Portos and Popeye's, got to love it.
All the yummy food...thanks Ann for bringing the Diane salad.

I was inspired by Priscilla for making these double-pocket bags. I made one and thought...I can make 11 more. And I did...fun and simple to make. Thanks for the inspiration.

I received this beautiful thank you card from Regina Chinn today. Remember the friend that came for a visit with her husband from Seattle? She wanted me to take notice that this is a product of some of the finds we bought at Fabric Barn along with some Stampin' Up! products. The leaves/branches is ribbon we found along with the turquoise rhinestones.
I love this card...Regina, this is so beautiful. I love the color combination, the layout, the asian nod and of course the bling!
We had our 36 week check up with the doctor and everything is still on track. My bump is getting big and I've officially gone into nesting mode.

Here's a share that my friend Tiffany had created for my baby shower over at GC3 with my old design team. It was very sweet and thoughtful...the only bummer was that she wasn't feeling well that day and stayed home. Thank you Tiff... for your time, your thoughtfulness, your energy...you're a great friend. Everything was super cute. Thank you.

This is my friend Pauline...yes, she's prego too. We met up with Pauline tonight at Savoy for dinner...she's about 38 weeks and will be having her baby on Monday! I'm 35 weeks...so we have a few more weeks to go. She's the very talented one that made Baby Boy Lau all the cute little crochet shoes and sandals. So stinkin' adorable. Just had to share her creations. Thanks Pauline.

Last night, I was so touched by my long time stamping friends in Monterey Park. I've been doing monthly workshops for them for about 8 years. I walked in to the room all ready to set-up for a workshop...and they surprised with a baby shower! Very sweet and they surprised me all right. Here are the handstamped cards they made for me.

Norm's hair is growing out nicely...especially since he has not had a haircut since we found out that we were expecting. We had our check-up with the doctor today and I'm happy to report that we're on track. The test results look good, baby's heartbeat sounds great and I didn't gain any weight. More In and Out burgers and Jamba Juice for me! One things for sure...the belly is getting heavy. Just 6 more weeks to go.
